You can combine two or more cells (cell: A box formed by the intersection of a row and column in a worksheet or a table, in which you enter information.) in the same row or column into a single cell. For example, you can merge several cells horizontally to create a table heading that spans several columns.
- Select the cells you want to merge.
Note If the cells in your table have no visible borders, you may find it helpful to show gridlines. Click Table Tools > Layout > View Gridlines.
- Right-click the selected cells and click Merge Cells.
